While there were so many great moments from the epic sendoff, one of our favorites HAD to be Simon Cowell making a surprise appearance and reuniting with his former fellow judges Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson — and of course host Ryan Seacrest!

What made this so special was Cowell, who often has nothing but harsh things to say, got a bit misty as he reflected on all the fun memories of working on the show. Simon even admitted he was a bit emotional as he said:

American Idol Is Down To The Final Three — Find Out Who Got Cut & Watch The Highlights!

Saying goodbye is never easy, and Thursday night was particularly tough as American Idol eliminated one last singer to leave the final 3 to battle it out to be crowned the champ!

After last week's Sia themed episode where only Trent Harmon, Dalton Rapattoni, La'Porsha Renae, and Mackenzie Bourg remained, we honestly were not sure who was going to be sent packing this week.

Sadly, in last night's episode, it was down to La'Porsha and Mackenzie and the moment Ryan Seacrest revealed the two singers in danger, Bourg knew he was going home.

The good news is, if you love Harmon, Rapattoni, or Renae, then you've still got a great chance for your pick to win it all next week as they turned in some AH-Mazing performances!

La'Porsha channeled her inner Adele, Dalton got his Bruce Springsteen on, and Trent turned in an incredible performance covering Parson James.

Ch-ch-check out the final three's best performances from last night (below) and let us know who you'll be rooting for to win it all!

Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato, Zayn Malik, & MORE Coming To Wango Tango This Year! We CANNOT EVEN With This Lineup!

no title

We simply cannot with this lineup!

Ryan Seacrest and 102.7 KIIS FM always throw a great party for the annual Wango Tango concert, but they sure outdid themselves for 2016.

That's because Ryan himself announced the main stage acts for the event on his radio show Thursday morning, and Ariana Grande, Zayn Malik, and Demi Lovato are only three of the A-Listers set to attend!

In addition to the trio, you can expect Fifth Harmony, Iggy Azalea, Gwen Stefani, Zendaya, Meghan Trainor, Alessia Cara, Mike Posner, Joe Jonas and DNCE, The Chainsmokers, and Kygo to bless us with their sound at the Stubhub Center in El Lay!

It's almost as if they asked us for our ideal setlist! LOLz!!!

More acts will be announced as we get closer to May 14, but we think it's safe to say you don't wanna miss out on this.

Will U be hitting up Wango Tango this year??

Are Former Flames Ryan Seacrest & Shana Wall Back On?! See The Proof!

| Filed under: SIGHtingLove LineAmerican IdolRyan Seacrest

Ryan Seacrest and Shana Wall

Whoa, throwback! And it's not even Thursday!

Ryan Seacrest was spotted tootling around arm-in-arm with ex Shana Wall in NYC on Saturday — so does that mean these two former flames are back on??

The American Idol host and the former Amazing Race contestant officially dated from 2003-2005 but remained close after calling it quits. Miz Hall even notoriously refuted ongoing rumors about Ryan's sexuality saying:

"[Ryan Seacrest] is not gay, nor is he bisexual. We had an amazing and passionate relationship for a few years, and we are still very close."

Over 10 years since the split, Seacrest and Hall looked cozy as they locked arms while out for a stroll. Ryan kept it lowkey under a NYPD hat and aviators. Shana looked super stylish in a camel pea coat and over-the-knee suede boots.

Side note: Ryan loves that navy ball cap! See him wearing it again from when they were together in the gallery (above)!

So what do U think, Perezcious readers?? Are these former lovebirds back on or are they strictly friends?? SOUND OFF in the comments!
